the debates sure matter in 2008. going in, obama and republican challenger john mccain were neck in neck. post debates gave obama victories in each case. he soared from there. >> what do we do now? we hear all these polls. the obama cam says we like these polls because they're ahead. the romney campaign says you know what? they're insignificant. what do you think? >> they are and they aren't. a six-point spread among likely voters is not that impressive. it is within the margin of error. but obama's showing is most impressive in those swing states like ohio, florida and pennsylvania. the winner has got to win at least one, preferably at least two to make it. now he has double digit or near double digit leads in each of them. all of which places incredible pressure on mitt romney to change the course of the campaign. >> so what's the game plan for each one of the candidates at the debates? >> okay. the first debate is on domestic policy. fine. that should be romney's bread
6:26 pm
and butter. he has to find a way to return to his message on the economy. what is the message? mainly that whatever the mess obama inherited, he hasn't fixed it. conclusion. time for a change. now for obama. he has a little bit of a trickier minefield. he has to remind viewers the economy was much, much worse than anyone expected. and that slowly but surely, the country is beating back that most serious recession since world war ii. one other point. the first debate, usually gets the tone set for the other two. that makes next wednesday ground zero, a very important night. >> and of course, we will have that for you. thank you very much. still ahead at 6:00, cutting out the fat but not the taste. the new trend in diet foods as companies try to split the difference. >> plus, early warning system for b.a.r.t. and thousands of circuit breakers with a dangerous flaw. our investigator has the warnings, the test results and the solution. this is a lot of food for 4 bucks.

car? i see them in the morning and the afternoon when i come pick up my daughter. >> reporter: which is why both moms say they'll join more than 100 other parents at a walk tonight on south first street to raise awareness about the problem. they want cops to do more. but san jose police say budget cuts have forced them to make prostitution a lower priority. >> we used to have a metro unit that dedicated the entire team to conducting prostitution enforcement. that's no longer the case. our union is to go 100% gang suppression all the time to stop the youth violence. we're basically doing the best we can with what we have. >> reporter: police say one reason prostitutes come here is because of the high volume of low cost motels on south first street. in august, the city attorney slapped an injunction on one hotel, ordering it to make specific changes to deter prostitution. the parents say it is not enough. and they're tired of seeing condoms near campus. they've also seen lots of
6:32 pm
syringes and they're worried the increase in prostitution may lead to more drug crimes. police say it is a very real possibility. >> prostitution and narcotics offenses often overlap. >> which is why parents say now is the time to act to protect their kids. they say prostitution has no place near the playground. in san jose, nbc bay area news. >> they're design to prevent fires. not cause them. tonight our investigative umt has uncovered problems with circuit breakers in thousands of bay area homes. chief investigative report he tony cove lessky has the details. many of us are still at risk. >> reporter: it is supposed to make everyone safer. but this circuit breaker here has a long history of failing for decades. the consumer product safety commission has known about this problem but there has been no recall. >> it lit up cherry red. >> reporter: he is a master electrician. and. >> and it lit up that cross base
6:33 pm
like the gates of hell. it could have killed me. >> reporter: remembering a morning back in 1979, work a crawl space under a bay area house. >> i had to roll and approach on my hands and knees, through the small opening from the crawl space. it shut off. it was spitting flame. >> reporter: he blame a faulty circumstance breaker. a federal pacific stab lock breaker. >> i've seen so many fires. so many places burned by these panels. it is frightening to me every time i see it over and over again. >> reporter: circuit breakers are design to prevent fires. when working properly, they stop the flow of electricity following excessive demand or a short circuit. today, the federal pefk circuit breakers are in millions of homes nationwide including hundreds of thousands of bay area houses. they're most commonly found in homes built before 1990. the breaker is a safety device that is supposed to prevent fires. if it doesn't work as required,
6:34 pm
you get an increased rick of fire. >> reporter: jesse is an expert on federal pacific circuit breakers. he is an engineer. he spem more than 20 years researching the problem and he has testified in lawsuits against the now defunct company. >> there is no inconsistency and no dispute as to the fact they're defective. >> reporter: he said tests by the consumer product safety commission and a number of other credible labs all proved federal pacific breakers are not reliable. >> this is a federal pacific breaker. how does it fail? watch closely. we had a federal pacific circuit breaker tested at this lab in berkeley. w started -- >> reporter: it is a 60-amp break, the same as you would find in many homes. it should trip in less than two minutes. >> we're at 1:10 and there's smoke coming out of the breaker. there is definite smoke coming out. >> reporter: the lab cut away
6:35 pm
some of the plastic siding so you can have a closer look, an aesthetic change that experts say will not atter functionality of the breaker until we're almost four minutes in. it is smoking and it hasn't tripped. why not? >> because the mechanical mechanism that is supposed to be tripping the breaker is stuck. >> reporter: it raises many questions. how can a defective circumstance breaker pass federal inspections? how did it comply with federal electric code and receive this ul stamp of approval. and how did a known defective product get into million of homes? >> fp was cheating on the testing. and applying the label to product that was defective and did not meet the requirements. >> reporter: an accusation of cheating that is supported by this document obtained by nbc bay area. it is a 1982 s.e.c. filing from the company that purchased federal pacific. look closely.
6:36 pm
it reads, u.l. listings on circuit breakers made by federal pacific have previously been obtained through the use of deceptive or improper use tactics. according to them, they tricked the inspegtor by using a hidden remote control to force the breaker to trip. if it was not tripping properly. >> they represent an abnormal hazard. they should be replaced. >> reporter: take a look at this internal document we obtained from bay area rapid transit. it shows b.a.r.t. also had electrical equipment problems with feder pacific. it reads, there have been two instances of failures with the old federal pacific electric secondary distribution panels. and it goes on to say, failure of this old equipment has caused delays to b.a.r.t. train service, and created a potentially unsafe conditions. b.a.r.t. replaced the federal pacific equipment. >> so we take all the breakers out of it.
6:37 pm
run the wires out of here. new breakers. that's the story. >> reporter: and the home owner daniel schmidt decided to remove federal pacific from his home, removing the risk from his east bay home. >> i know it will be safer. it is a panel that has quite a reputation. >> so this breaker is so hot that it is smoking. it will not trip. >> you cannot run the risk of having breakers that might malfunction. >> the consumer product safety commission tested the federal pacific breaker back in the '80s and legal challenges followed. the cpse never force ad recall and neversome believe they did not have the budget for that legal fight. now we spoke with a bay area attorney representing the defunct federal pacific company. she declined our request to comment on this investigation. now, this is an important point. jesse believes failures with federal pacific circuit breakers are responsible for 2,000 fires
6:38 pm
nationwide each year. so your question. how do you know if you have one of these breakers in your house? well, we've also put together a video demonstration with an expert who will take you through how to check to see if your breaker was made by federal pacific. you can find that demonstration on our website. at >> very useful information. thank you. if you have a tip for our investigative unit, we urge you to give us a call. 888-996-tips. still ahead, forget nonfat. how about mid calorie? believe it or not, a new trend in food. and a new trend when it comes to that weather forecast. it warmed up a little for today. we'll go much hotter as we head through the three-day forecast. 80s by the bayful low to mid 90s inland. if you're going to be watching or heading to san diego for the giants game, the temperatures are very comfortable. in the low 70s and mostly clear.

the next time there's an earthquake in san francisco or the east bay, the first people to know about it might be the ride orders b.a.r.t. that's because the trains are newly wired to break automatically seconds before the shaking of an earthquake is felt. scientists at u.c. berkeley hooked b.a.r.t. into the california seismic network, essentiallyw linking the transi system to 200 seismic stations throughout california. electronic systems which travel faster than the actual earthquake will activate about ten seconds before the shaking is felt. that should stop or at least slow down the trains, avoiding
6:42 pm
derailment. >> electronics playing a big role in what is being called a reboot of cal train. state transportation commission awarded the aging train system nearly $40 million to help transform it from diesel to electrical power. this is just the first step in a process which won't be finish until 2019 but it will integrate it into the rail system which will break ground next year in the central valley. it is thursday. i think we're allowed to officially talk about the weekend. it will look so great. here it is in san francisco. that really says it all. we have some fog and some cooler air and then plenty of sunshine. we'll have the details.
6:43 pm
6:44 pm
n-a new trend in snacking. mid calorie snacks. they're supposed to taste good, not like cardboard. company like dreyers, hershey's and lays have a little more fat than previous diet versions but still less than the original. the taste without -- you can taste all the taste they say without feeling guilty. you still have to snack in moderation if you want to keep the calories down. >> so it is mid calories.
6:45 pm
not high calories, not localeries. >> like a mid-size car. >> some of those low calorie things if i may say so, they're a little extra crunchy if you go with the baked version. i like that. let's look at the temperature. down into palm springs. they have 94 degrees right now. we had hotter weather than parts of the desert here across the bay area today. that's definitely some water cooler talk. we have the fog across the coastline. the number dropping into the 50s and some 80s in the east bay. but at the coastline, we'll see a starkly different picture about two days from now. we are on the cusp of some much warmer weather. we head into september. a lot of sunshine. some warmer weather. last year we had 20 days for the entire month. by this week we're at mid 70s. a little more of a conservative
6:46 pm
